And I don’t mean the weather!! I spent 2 hours this morning crying from every opening in my face as my cold medicine let everything go. It was quite unpleasant. But things cleared up around 12:30 and I decided to bike to the gym to breath in lots of fresh air. My body feels fine […]

My cold is all runny nose etc. this morning 😥 Hopefully it’s on its last day… I did manage 9 hours of sleep last night, so that was nice! I told myself when I left Hillsborough that I would leave unpacking for the morning because I am one of those nutty people who has to […]

What a wonderful way to wake up on my last morning. The new room faced east and I set my alarm to wake up with the sunrise around 7:15. Gorgeous! I was supposed to do sunrise yoga today, but instead I read in bed and pittered in my computer until it was time to meet […]

It’s kinda sad here this morning – we’ve all got a case of the vacation end blues. We’re racing the radar to get in a run before the pouring rain hits, but we didn’t want to miss breakfast so we’re just waiting to digest. It’s an upset stomach vs. getting soaked competing at this point. […]

I feel like today was our last day because 1) The forecast is calling for rain tomorrow and 2) The husband is leaving tomorrow with Karen + Andrew to head back to Charlotte in time for a 3am work shift on Tuesday morning. I am staying one more day with my parents to soak up […]
